Many people who say the he500 is shrill sounding or like it less then the 400 probably didnt listen to it with the right amp.IMHO...the 400 sounds good with much lesser quality amp so its easy to say the he400 sounds better..the 6 is the best of the 3 ofcourse! but u need a very very very good amp to outshine the he500 in my opinion. Thats why i sold my he400 and as soon i have enough money.i will sell my excellent 337 and he500 for..a new high end amp and he6..
Enjoy ur he500 timodeus
Ps..a tip..try to exhange the standard silver cable for a good copper one ( like a toxic cables black widow 22 AWG - i will put a little review online as soon i receive 2 of them next week!) and if u have the chance try the darkvoice 337 or the lafigaro 339 or violectric v200 or yulong a18 sabre or shiit mjolnir..with those amps and the right cable ur he500 will outshine almost anything normal people can afford. IMHO ps..yep i consider myself a normal guy..well most of the times
Not really. As you have seem many times before - the $200 a-100 mini X will make the HE-6 outshine the 500s in a heart beat. Also, lets not forget about the HE-5LEs here. A pretty good headphone in it's own right. On that same a-100 mini X it out shines the 500s as well. IMO
